Identity by Nora Roberts (St. Martin’s) is the top holds title of the week. LibraryReads and Library Journal offer read-alikes for patrons waiting to read this buzziest book.

When her roommate is killed at the first party they throw at their Baltimore-area apartment, Morgan learns that she was the intended victim of the assailant, who steals each target’s identity and then kills her; a million-copy first printing for Roberts.—Barbara Hoffert

You Never Know by Connie Briscoe (Amistad)

Appeared on the March 2023 LibraryReads list

“Alexis Roberts was home alone and asleep, with her cochlear implants disconnected, when she had to fight off a home invader. Her new husband Marcus was away from home, and she has no leads to offer the police. Was it her stalker ex-boyfriend, whom she left for Marcus a year ago? Was it Marcus himself? Their whirlwind romance shifted in tone after they married, and his first wife disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Using information gleaned from Marcus’s home office files and interviews with his relatives, she’s learning he may have been too good to be true.”—Alene Moroni, Forbes Library, Northampton MA

Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger (Park Row: Harlequin; LJ starred review)

Appeared on the October 2021 LibraryReads list

“Wren meets Adam on a dating app, and they seem to hit it off. After she tells him a secret, though, he ghosts her. She refuses to let it go and starts searching for him. What she finds is shocking, but she can match him in the secret department. Chilling, twisty, and hard to put down. Give to fans of Ghosted and The Couple Next Door.”—Shari Suarez, Genesee District Library, Goodrich, MI

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz (S. & S.; LJ starred review)

Appeared on the March 2016 LibraryReads list

“This is a compulsively readable story of a young woman who has to keep switching identities and stay on the run. Is she a reliable narrator or not? What was the original event that sent her on the run? There is a lot of action and suspense as she tries to survive and evade the law while trying to keep her moral center intact. Unlike Lutz’s Spellman series, this reads more like a Charles Portis road novel, though considerably more serious and dangerous. Highly recommended.”—Beth DeGeer, Bartlesville Public Library, Bartlesville, OH
